Lilongwe — Vice President, Dr Saulos Chilima has hinted that Malawi as a country should stop thinking of short-term implementation of its development agenda.
He made the observation Thursday at Bingu International Convention Centre (BICC) in Lilongwe during the launch of Malawi Growth Development Strategy (MGDS) III Mid-Term Review Report.
Chilima who doubles as Minister Responsible for Economic Planning and Development and Public Sector Reforms said such thinking often satisfies political egos at the expense of our children’s future.
“We need to inculcate a culture of continuing with development programmes and policies that are or have significant potential to transform the lives of Malawians. This is part of the public sector reforms that some of us championed which gave birth to the National Planning Commission (NPC),” he said.
